ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN
Merlin UX Architects skillfully elicit and analyze business and user needs, employing iterative cycles of customer journey mapping, solution storyboarding, and prototyping techniques to drive clarification and gain consensus on the “right” solution design. Leveraging the UX architecture and design to prioritize and road-map capabilities, whether Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) configured or built, Merlin customers are able to seamlessly progress from “As-Is” to a highly designed, results-driven “To-Be.”
Our UX Architecture and Design efforts skillfully synthesize the results of requirements, architecture, storyboarding, and horizontal and vertical prototyping efforts to create the right boundaries within which solutions are delivered.
Merlin’s UX Architecture and Design process includes:
Solution Architects fully vet the systems and sub-systems to understand inter-dependencies, and design a “To-Be” technical and UX architecture. The UX architecture ensures the solution will provide the value it is intended to provide to users. Solution recommendations are documented and critical architectural elements are presented in a highly visual Solution Architecture Diagram – a deliverable unique to Team Merlin. Other artifacts may include white papers and product comparison matrices that compare/contrast risks, benefits, costs and feasibility of solution elements.
As applications are increasingly deployed on web-based platforms relying on service-oriented architectures, Merlin works to ensure that application and deployment configuration designs deliver for the customer. This means designing and/or analyzing applications for web-based UI conventions, browser compatibility, performance, access-control, security compliance, off-line capabilities with re-connect synchronization services, and alignment with Enterprise Architectural standards.
